    Originally I had planned to have three bass traps across the front wall but I got impatient and installed my new rack first. This blocked access to wall and I decided not to install the center bass trap. I installed it on the back wall and ended up with an asymmetrical arrangement.

    Earlier this year I got the Mojo Audio DAC and have been really enjoying it especially at medium volumes. But at higher volumes it's superb imaging suffered. So I asked myself is it equipment or is it the room?

    My man cave is a repurposed garage and when I open the garage door the acoustics improve so I kinda knew it was the room and not the equipment.

    I decided to move the asymmetric bass trap to the front center and to my surprise the image that had been a little recessed was now in my face but the image was strong and stayed together at reference volumes.

    I listened for couple of nights and decided to move the speakers back towards the wall. I moved them 1/4" and the results are great! The image no longer in my face is where I think I should be and the bass is stronger but remains tight.

    The imaging is outstanding.

    Having fun here...

    Is that a HO slot car track?
    "Electronic music is human sound adapting to indulge technology, and for some, it feels like the signature sound of energy. New and abstract sounds over hypnotic rhythms can conjure vast soundscapes for escape, pleasure, and transcendence."

    That's quite a dog house you've built there. I still really dig your rig and think it might be one of my favorites because of the location.

    Thanks Skip
    It is nice to play music at any level without bothering the wife. :D

    Without question, the "Garage Rig" of the decade. I love this space, you've done a heck of a job machone, you've got a lot to be proud of!

    I pushed the speakers back another 1/4" closer to the wall. Not impressed. Undid the move.

    Then I moved them 1/2" further apart. Best so far.

    Also, I am using a string across the baffles to make sure they are parallel.

    I pulled the speakers out from the wall another 1/4". Better sound stage and cleaner, stronger bass.

    Here are some I built for LSAF. Stands are made with black pipe and base filled with lead shot.

    That looks quite similar to what we made for one room.
    Was that Roxul from Home Depot by chance?

    The Dyn's being rear ported and the walls at LSAF are concrete so I needed something for the bass....I used this
